        Who did you end up using? I need to transport my Conestoga from San Diego to WA. I see all kinds of providers: Montway, EShipTransport, SGT Auto Transport, Easy Auto Shipping, etc.

          I don't think I would recommend these Russians:

            No wonder Ukraine is winning! I sure hope there is an escape hatch under that thing. Or not!

            I guess I previously posted in the wrong area for anyone to see.
            It was supposed to be for anyone who required hauling:

              Transportation still seems to be at a premium.

              Tentatively sold two 1939 Commanders for bargain price of 1500 to California. Cheapest transportation was 7000. Customer balked. Took off front clip, rest went to wreckers. I was thinking about taking them there myself, except Covid restrictions are still messing it up.

                  Like everything else, costs have gone up. My rates average $2.50 per loaded mile, less per mile for longer trips, more per mile for shorter trips. On top of that, since fuel has jumped over two dollars per gallon since last year, I have to get a fuel surcharge. I don’t pass every increase along to the customer, I do eat part of it because we are all in tough times, but I did have to pass along most of it. Very frustrating times.

                  I am still getting jobs. But now it’s more high end vehicles. The increase doesn’t amount to that much on a six or seven figure vehicle, and those people don’t worry about it anyway. But it adds up quickly on a couple thousand dollar unrestored or parts vehicle.

                    One of my clients advised he had a car being delivered last Tuesday evening and could I take care of it. My wife and I went to the warehouse and arrived at the same time as the hauler. The car being delivered was a large 1937 Packard V12, very nice. The driver was Russian I believe very poor English if any. He lowered the ramp and removed all the tie downs and then gave me the keys. He could not drive a manual transmission.
